Ignoring the Plans and Self-Discovery
Finding out my moon sign has been a revelation to me! It has helped me to understand my personality a bit more. My sun sign is Aries, which is determined by the day I was born but my moon sign is Pisces which is determined by which sign the moon was in at the time of birth. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, the child and Pisces is the twelfth sign of the zodiac, the oldest, which has picked up characteristics of the previous eleven signs. I know that some people think that astrology is a lot of mumbo jumbo but it has helped me in the past and given me the guidance that I often seek.
As well as reading up on astrology and crochet I think I have improved upon the brooches that I am making (see previous post) by cutting them out with pinking shears. I think it adds to the texture. Thank you for the suggestions on presentation, I am still tinkering with that.
I also decided I needed to make pastry at the weekend as I fancied eating some jam tarts. I was very pleased with the result and I will be making it again.
So, I had a weekend of ignoring the one that I had planned and in the process gained some new information regarding astrology, and gained skills in learning to crochet a cushion cover and make pastry.
I am glad that I took a detour. Life doesn't always go to plan anyway does it?
